Driveshaft repair costs in the UK

Your driveshaft repair will depend on the make and model of the vehicle and how long it takes to carry out the work.

  • A typical mid-price marque such as Ford, Fiat, Hyundai or Honda can cost anywhere from £250–£500 from an authorised dealer.
  • If you drive a luxury model such as a Lexus, Alfa Romeo or Mercedes, then you can expect the prices to rise to anywhere up to £400–£900.

The terminology you’re likely to hear from a mechanic could include everything from torque tubes, differentials and slip joints, to gaiters, couplings and yokes.

Needless to say, it can get pretty mind-bending if you’re not an expert and just want your car repaired with the minimum amount of fuss.
